Kansas State University

“Kansas State University has an Honor & Integrity System based on personal integrity which is presumed to be sufficient assurance in academic matters that one’s work is performed honestly and without unauthorized assistance. Students, by registration, acknowledge the jurisdiction of the Honor & Integrity System. The policies and procedures of the Honor & Integrity System apply to all full and part-time students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate courses oncampus, off-campus, and via distance learning. A component vital to the Honor & Integrity System is the inclusion of the Honor Pledge which applies to all assignments, examinations, or other course work undertaken by undergraduate and graduate students. The Honor Pledge is implied, whether or not it is stated: ‘On my honor, as a student, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this academic work.’ A grade of XF can result from a breach of academic honesty. An XF would be failure of the course with the X on the transcript indicating failure as a result of a breach of academic honesty.”
